Hatha yoga is the most widely practiced form of yoga in America. It is the branch of yoga which concentrates on physical health and mental well-being. Hatha yoga uses bodily postures (asanas), breathing techniques (pranayama), and meditation (dyana) with the goal of bringing about a healthy body and a clear, peaceful mind. In our classes we flow with breath, explore every range of motion, stretch and align for whole body balance.
This all levels class is long, slow, and deep. In Yin Yoga, we focus primarily on seated and lying postures. By coming in gently and holding for time, our bodies soften slowly into poses which allows a careful opening of the deeper, more plastic tissues of the body such as fascia. We use that extended time in a pose to investigate and cultivate mindfulness and connect more deeply with the energy body. This class is especially great as a balancing practice for people with a high level of physical activity or people that want to learn to meditate but struggle to sit still. Regardless of your lifestyle, everyone can benefit from a little stillness and present moment attention.
All levels welcome! This class is where you learn to relax! Soft music, gentle poses, lots of props all help to create an environment of cozy, peaceful comfort which helps you to unwind from your weekly life stress. Science shows that by learning how to relax without "numbing out" has many benefits including increased function in the nervous, digestive, and immune systems. We will learn to breath deeper and slower, stretch gently and mindfully, and open our energy channels to come out feeling refreshed and ready to enjoy the weekend.
